Check out this video. It’s from 1958!! Aren’t we living (or lived) through all of this? Please watch and pass along! A bit Ronulan, but impressive indeed.
Sarah Palin will speak at a tea party rally in Madison, Wisconsin. Andrew Breitbart will join her, as both of them will be in the middle of the hornets’ nest where unions, Democrats and college kids have threatened to throw cheese curds at them, and perhaps other things:
The Koch Brothers think it’s hilarious when their dumb puppets have to go face huge, angry crowds of political opponents. Remember the movie Trading Places? It’s the same idea: Incredibly rich old white creeps just torture their own lackeys whenever it gets dull oppressing the faceless poor and destroying the Earth to make Dixie Cups and Brawny paper douche towels. So the Koch Brothers are bringing Sarah Palin to Madison, right there at the State Capitol, for an “Americans For Prosperity” rally. Haha the union people and college kids are going to pelt her with a million pounds of Wisconsin’s famous Fried Cheese Turds. Or curds, whatever. Curdle Rain. Poor snowbilly grifter!
Let’s pray for a peaceful rally, that Sarah, her family and all those that gather today are safe from any threats or danger. It’s just too bad that the hatred still continues to this day, when there are other critical issues to turn to like jobs, the economy and national security.

UPDATE: I added information on the bullet-point section below, with regards to Louisiana and Puerto Rico. I provided evidence of how Louisiana benefits from the film industry, and for those that don’t follow the “Twilight” series, Louisiana is where the film started. Right now they are still filming, but in Vancouver. A segment of the new “Pirates Of The Caribbean” was filmed in Puerto Rico. A proper link about that is below as well.
I hope that now this turns into a non-issue, considering how many incentives Obama has granted large corporations that have contributed to the Democrat Party.
Thanks, The Palin Express
It is still going on, my friends. Apparently, Governor Palin‘s Facebook post did not answer one of my reader’s questions. Therefore, I will place that comment here. I know the answers to these questions, as well as many of you who read here.
But I promised the best answers I could offer; therefore, I will attempt to get as close to the source as possible. The Daily Caller did not do their job as professionnal journalisms to distinguish or write about this mini-series. Homework on the matter could have easily been done and interview any and all people involved, and left her out of the picture. Unfortunately that was not the case.
So here it goes:
All I see is more of Ms. Palin’s patent-pending “I’m a victim” reaction to the media accurately reporting her own words and actions, and then her railing against the “liberal media” for being “mean” to her. According to Ms. Palin, she is the single-most-often misquoted person in the history of the written word.
So, I will put the question in so simple a set of questions that even Sarah Palin won’t be able to misconstrue, divert, distort or distract from a simple yes-or-no answer:
Was “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” subsidized, fiscally augmented, reimbursed, credited or remunerated in any way, shape or form by the state government of Alaska? Yes or No.
Did your TLC television show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” receive the aforementioned subsidy, fiscal augmentation, reimbursement, credit or remuneration because it became possible as the result of legislation you implemented as governor of Alaska in 2008? Yes or No.
Were you, Sarah Palin, or any investments or accounts held by you or for you, the recipient of ANY money – directly or indirectly – as a result of that Alaska payment/credit to the production company? Yes or No.
Do you believe that you should not be held accountable to the “feathering the nest” rule regarding legislators and profit from legislation? Yes or No.
Do you believe it is hypocritical of you to personally accept public money for a private television endeavor while you simultaneously speak out in favor of cutting funding for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System? Yes or No.
No punches pulled there, Ms. Palin. No obscure, unclear questions. No sandbags. Just a series of simple, easy to answer, yes-or-no questions.
I challenge you to reply to them each with nothing more than a “yes” or “no” answer.
I decided to look up some blog pieces that cover this same topic, right before I tweet about this. Here are the links, below:
- Doc Zero, at Human Events;
- USA Today explains why Baton Rouge, LA was chosen to film part of “Breaking Dawn;”
- On Location Vacations, website that shows ALL current films and their locations;
- Stacy from C4P answers what entails tax credits, production and incentives for films/mini-series and other documentaries for states like Alaska;
- Jim Geraghty at NRO posted an update that did NOT reflect the truth of Alaska’s incentives and tax breaks that Governor Palin, in a bi-partisan effort, signed into law in 1998 as part of her own agenda of “Back To The Future” where she’d benefit from filming “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” with TLC. State tax and federal taxes are totally different, and the state was the one that really got the benefit from its beauty and resources.
- Louisiana benefits greatly on their tax incentives and they have a website where all the information is broken down, and all the films that are currently in agenda. I posted this information on Ace’s website who ponders about the same non-issue; nevertheless he’s getting slammed as well.
- US Territories like Puerto Rico have also been excellent film locations, i.e., the new “Pirates Of The Caribbean“. Check out the carriage scene, the Fort, and the small private island. Scroll down where it says, “Fajardo, Puerto Rico”. The carriage scene, along with the fort was filmed in Old San Juan.
NOTE: Alaskans are quite happy about all the incoming tourism. How does GE feel about their benefits, tax breaks and “blind eyes” that they get from Obama?

This country is in a steep decline with serious fiscal and social problems that many politicians promised to fix, and so they won in November. That is a big reason we see an increase from the Left. The fact that we won this past November is driving liberals crazy. Governor Palin and the Tea Party were a key factor with their grassroots efforts and three-quarters of candidates that Palin endorsed won. To this date, the RNC meekly thanked Governor Palin and the Tea Party, but not the way they truly deserved. This shows a lack of integrity and humbleness on their part.
Millions of Americans are on the center-right spectrum; the Grand Old Party has deep and empty pockets. They need millions of dollars to pay up for their failures and abandonment, while at the same time bring back big donors and convince them that the RNC does have serious focus and determination to win the presidency in November of 2012.
Now, the Republicans and Conservatives that give smaller donations are very skeptical and they have every right to be; these folks demand a winning strategy and a strong leader that delivers. The RNC will not see an immediate increase of these donors for now. They have to prove themselves not only to their base, but to the country.
There is a serious issue that the GOP must work very hard with, and that is to bring a united front to attack liberal smears that tarnish their own’s image and reputations. They don’t seem to care about Palin’s and that’s noticed with delight by the Left, and with serious concern and frustration from Conservatives and the Right.
The country is tired of listening what the GOP’s philosophy is, and frankly the Left and Independents could care even less. Both sides of the aisle want Palin out of the political scene, and soon. If these “politicos” are serious for a possible 2012 victory on the GOP primary, they are choosing wrong: Most of them are waiting for Governor Palin to decide what will be her next move. Why wait if they’re so confident of their victory? Is it that they are waiting for the media to carry their water? If the GOP primary candidates are so sure about their chance for success, they shouldn’t wait for Governor Palin to decide anything. Why wait?
These ”politicos” must show the fortitude to defend the US Constitution, be unafraid to support and speak to the American public about the Second Ammendment in spite of the Arizona tragedy. They must seek their strength from within and the integrity (again) to take on tough challenges i.e., the media. Embrace tasks that should take them out of their comfort zone is a must, and for a change, l0ok away from their own PAC’s and speak to the American people about why is it right to defend and uphold conservative, classic American values that are under threat under the Obama administration.
Governor Palin has done all of these things as soon as she stepped on the political scene in 2008. These politicians that are quite hungry for the big job have a lot to catch up to.

Julian Assange is at it again. Cornered, first he walked off an interview with ABC, and now he’s going after Palin and Huckabee-just because they work on FOX? I ponder this, because both work at the same network and he hasn’t singled out anybody else (yet) on the media.
Thou shall not mention his name; if you do, you will be accused of McCarthyism or something. The quotes on bold are from the article, my responses below.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur, Assange referred to the politicians-turned-Fox-personalities as “shock jocks” who should be charged for inciting violence against him and his organization.
He also referred to Huckabee as “just another idiot trying to make a name for himself.”
Pot calling kettle? As much as I hate to, I have to defend Mike Huckabee. A Christian Republican that is defending his country against one person that is determined to destroy it-by their own terms of what freedom means-cannot go unnoticed. An immature and childish response towards Huckabee coming from Assange demonstrates that he believes in his own wicked mind how much of a despot he is to other countrymen.
Asked what he thought of the accusation — made by Vice President Joe Biden and others — that he is a “high-tech terrorist,” Assange said his organization’s actions didn’t meet the definition of terrorism — but those of Fox personalities and other TV pundits did.
I have to laugh this one out because Shep Smith is included and he must be in some serious denial. Maybe it will take time for it to sink it. Just sayin’!
“We see constant threats from people, the Republican Senate trying to make a name for themselves, people like Sarah Palin to shock jocks on Fox and, unfortunately, some members also of the Democratic Party, calling for my assassination, calling for the illegal kidnapping of my staff,” Assange said.
Read that quote again. YES-he said UNFORTUNATELY some members also of the Democratic Party. What does he mean by this? Are the top eschelon Democrats involved, and are covering their butts? Are the Democrats destroying the country from within, and not Muslims in the country with domestic terrorism? Tin foil hats are in order. Because really, he didn’t say UNFORTUNATELY some members also of the Republican Party. Case closed.
Of Huckabee’s call to have Assange executed, and Palin’s demand that he be hunted down like al Qaeda, Assange said: “If we are to have a civil society, you cannot have senior people making calls on national TV to go around the judiciary and illegally murder people. That is incitement to commit murder. That is an offense.”
Attention liberals: What hundreds of thousands of Americans believe is true; Sarah Palin is a senior leader. He is NOT attacking Palin: He is raising the bar! If Assange supports Al Qaeda terrorism attacks to this country is another story that would not deviate much from this one. Now I have this question: How do you go around the judiciary on national TV? The media loves to mention Governor Palin, accuse her of something she didn’t do, judge her on the spot and calling for an execution…that’s a correct statement. If you have any questions, simply Google it.
He added: “When people call for illegal, deliberate assassination and kidnapping of others, they should be held to account. They should be charged for incitement to commit murder.”
Sorry Mr. Assange, that does not work in this country. It may work for some, but it gets us nowhere. See, we are a free republic. We are still a capitalist country, not a socialistic nor a communist country. Therefore, we can’t charge people and throw them in prison based on loose accusations like that. Why? Because we have something called “the rule of law.”
“Some of those journalists have fallen for that, and why? Because they are worried that they are going to be next,” he continued. “But I have a message to them — they are gonna be next. … So us journalists and publishers and writers, we all have to stick together to resist this sort of reinterpretation of the First Amendment.”
I will write this: That’s why there are bloggers out there, spreading information based on our First Amendment, which is being trampled right now, along with in other parts of the world where there is limited freedom of speech. The journalists have fallen to report on a balanced way because they have allowed their inner feelings perculate through their articles, or fear to be laid off from their jobs. That is not freedom of speech.
What journalists, publishers and writers have to do to stick together? Gain their reputation back. How? Going back to the principles of the First Amendment by reading about it. Then, tell it like it is to the audience without repercussions from their bosses. If they get upset or fire a journalist, more ears will perk up and identify those who challenge and dare to bring up both sides of the story.
